Hey,
There are 430000 apps from the apple appstore but zero Big Green Egg apps. Someone could get on that and make a few bucks.

    What would you want it to do? Would it be just recipes? Links to the forum(s)?

    I've been wanting to start writing some iPad apps but you must have an apple computer to do the development. Unfortunately funds are a little too tight right now to go purchase another computer...

    Things like this should be free in my opinion. BGE already nickels and dimes everyone to death on add-ons.

    A Stoker Log app for my android phone would be awesome but I guess that would have to come from the developers of the Stoker Log.

    A friend looked into having a marathon-training app developed. $30,000 or so. Hard to recoup that expenditure at $.99 per App! :-((

    Got tired cooking in volumes (especially baking!) so I do all I can in weights now - eg. 1 1/2 cups of ketchup weighs 450 grams. Try working accurately with a recipe using volumes of butter or something sticky like molasses. Sure saves a lot of mucking about with dirty measuring cups and spoons. I have an inexpensive electronic scale and a pal gave me an old fine balance scale so I can even do herbs and things for my rubs by weight. It's the way to reproduceable results!

    The iPhone app I use all the time for these conversions is 'Kitchen Calculator Pro' http://www.kitchencalculator.net/ . Best $4.00 purchase yet. The USDA also has a great website for converting volume of ingredients to weights at http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/index.html - you can use this database to add ingredients to the app you use a lot eg. hoisin sauce

    The other iPhone app I use all the time is a unit converter as I work in metric and most recipes in North America use Imperial. eg. 1.5 pints is a mystery to me but I can work with 710 ml. There are a whole lot of these converter apps from which to choose.

    So my iPhone has become a very important cooking tool.
    Right here is the Promised Land. Right now is the Golden Age.

    Not sure about the app... but I agree with reflib... I recently started going to weights on some recipes, charcuterie for sure, and the others are just sort of what looks good. Makes it a lot easier to tare out the scale and add an ingredient.

    I will have to look up that kitchen calculator app... sounds like I could use on of those.
